MPS Befriending Network
We link individuals and families affected by MPS and related diseases so you can share experiences and gain mutual support.
We undertake a comprehensive individual assessment of the issues which need to be addressed when caring and providing support to a child or adult diagnosed with an MPS or related disease. This includes issues such as personal care requirements, identifying individual needs, risk assessment and emergency guidelines.
We work closely with a number of respite providers such as hospices and, where appropriate, can make individual referrals. For more information please visit our Hospice Resources page.
We can provide a supportive role in the planning of palliative and end of life care. We provide support at the time of bereavement and we are still here to support you following your bereavement offering a helpline service and practical advice.

We also offer an opportunity to plant a tree in memory of your loved one at our beautiful Childhood Wood.
